A St. Paul man has been charged with terroristic threats for pointing an AK-47 rifle at his daughter during an argument over the fact that she got two B’s instead of straight A’s in school.

According to the charges, 52-year-old Kirill Bartashevitch recently purchased the AK-47 due to fears that such weapons would be banned under President Obama’s push for gun control legislation.

Well, if the daughter (and the mom) had been carrying their own guns, this wouldn’t have happened, now would it?

  1. Although the article I read said something about the gun being “unloaded”, there is no such thing as an unloaded gun, and you NEVER point one at another person unless you plan on shooting (and killing) them! FWIW, that was the first lesson my father taught me before he would let me have a toy pistol at the age of 5 or so. To reinforce the lesson, he would observe my play and confiscate the gun for awhile if he saw I was breaking that rule. Of course when you are playing cowboys and indians, or cops and robbers, you point the gun at the “enemy” and shoot! But otherwise, it was secured in the holster or pointing at the ground or (preferably) sky. Of course he also tried to teach me that what goes up, also comes down, which as an adult I found out for sure when I found a pistol bullet embedded in the shingles of the roof of my home in San Jose, at an angle that showed the shot was fired in the air! A warning police shot perhaps? In any case, it was only a foot or so from the edge of the roof next to our patio…

  2. Shots fired straight up: busted, plausible, and confirmed.
